“I could not wait to go to the place where I truly belonged.”
Amanda started her college career at one institution but quickly realized it wasn’t the place for her. So she transferred to Immaculata University.
“I love how personal Immaculata is,” she says. The staff, faculty, and Immaculate Heart of Mary Sisters form a caring community that inspires her.
“There are so many opportunities to explore at Immaculata that there is never any time to waste,” she adds, mentioning school-sponsored trips to Philly and Washington, DC; volunteer opportunities; academic support from Immaculata’s writing center; and campus social events.
Maybe you, like Amanda, started at one college and realized it wasn’t a good fit. Or maybe you earned credits at a community college and want to move on to a bachelor’s program.
Whatever your college journey has been so far, we invite you to continue it at Immaculata. Founded in 1920 by the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Immaculata offers a challenging education, invigorating activities, and a welcoming community for students of any faith.
